MFC Integration with the Windows Transactional File System (TxF)

The Transactional File System (TxF), which allows access to an NTFS file system to be conducted in a transacted manner through extensions to the Windows SDK API. MFC 10, has been extended to support TxF and related technologies. This support allows existing MFC applications to be easily extended to support kernel transactions.

Programming the Windows Transactional File System (TxF)

The Transactional File System (TxF) supports a number of advanced features that allow full control over data consistency and transaction commitment. In this C++ tutorial, transacted directory operations will be covered, demonstrating the ease with which directory consistency can be guaranteed using the TxF.

A Developer Introduction to the Kernel Transaction Manager (KTM) and Windows Transactional File System (TxF)

The use of transactions to ensure data consistency has long been associated with data maintained in relational database systems. With the Kernel Transaction Manager (KTM) introduced in Windows Vista, transaction support is available at the operating-system level, and Windows components like the Transactional File System (TxF) and Transactional Registry (TxR) allows developers to interact with these resources in a transactional manner.

Programming the Kernel Transaction Manager (KTM) API
